I (Tracy) had three speaking engagements in Iowa Monday and Tuesday this week. It just so happens that my husband’s relatives live in the area. I had the pleasure of driving up to Iowa with my youngest daughter and my mother-in-law and staying with my husband’s aunt and uncle.
We attended my husband’s cousin’s wedding while we were there. Here we are.
I felt like I stepped back in time. The times when women worked in the kitchen or did other household chores and as they worked they talked. They would learn valuable little tidbits of information from each other.
Of course, as we worked in the kitchen the topic of dish washing came up. Aunt Linda uses this fuzzy yellow wash cloth she purchased while in New Zealand!! She said it was dry by morning and never stinks.
I love watching how other people do things.
Simple things like how they store fruits or chop vegetables.
Meal planning ideas and recipes are a favorite thing for me to learn from other women. We had marinated and grilled vegetables and the most delicious pie ever. I’ll share the recipe soon.
I LOVE talking and learning from other women, especially older, wiser women.
We were actually talking about fabric detergent and Aunt Linda said that she loved OxiClean. She adds twice what it calls for to her white clothes and soaks them over night. She said it even gets mold spots out of her shower curtain liner.
Wait, did she just say shower liner? I use those plastic liners in the kid’s bathroom and they get really yucky. I can’t imagine sticking them in the washer. I just throw them out and replace them.
She explained that she uses the fabric shower curtain liners. The kind you see in hotel rooms. Hmmm. I never thought about trying those.
When they get a little mold spot or look dirty she soaks them in the washer with OxiClean overnight. All the spots come out!
I am trying this. My parents are coming in town this week. They use the kid’s bathroom so it will be nice to have a fresh, clean, FABRIC liner!
What kind of shower curtain liner do you use? How do you keep it clean? Wash it or throw it out?
